of the medicare prescription drug entitlement even though it was my party in power in congress and in the white house. i think what you've got is a new generation of republican leadership that in the last year demonstrated our willingness not only to stand against more borrowing and spending and bailouts and these government takeovers, but republicans, i know it didn't get reported a lot, but republicans had substantive alternatives on the economy, on the budget, on energy, on health care. and as we meet with the president next week our hope is that now having heard all of us from the american people that we're going to be able to get a willing ear at the white house and among democrats on capitol hill about some of our proposals to get the economy moving again and get spending under control. >> for the fun of it, let's talk about a couple of pieces of low hanging fruit. health care and the banks. there is a legalized monopoly with insurance, yet they came in with a mandate that forced everybody to buy health insurance in an unreformed monopoly which forced the stocks to explode without liberat
